Another yummy alternative to beef burgers for your grill! Cooking the curry powder with the onions for a brief time seems to mellow the flavor and bring out the sweetness of the onions. Originally from the magazine section of our local paper.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup chopped red onion
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 lb ground chicken or 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 small egg, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup fresh breadcrumb
- 1⁄4 cup granny smith apple, peeled and grated
- 1⁄4 cup mango chutney
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 4 toasted hamburger buns with sesame seeds
- Place the oil and chopped onion in a skillet over medium low heat; cook, stirring for 10 minutes.
- Reduce the heat to low, add the curry and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
- Remove to a bowl and cool.
- Combine with all the remaining ingredients except the buns and carrot salad.
- Form the mixture into 4 patties, about 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick.
- Prepare coals for grilling or preheat gas grill.
- Brush the grill with vegetable oil.
- Grill the burgers over medium heat for about 5 minutes per side, or till cooked through.
- Serve on toasted buns topped with 2 tablespoons of carrot salad (see my recipe) or garnish of your choice.
Really flavorful and moist. Plus, they were quick and easy to make.
Crazy good turkey burgers!!! This recipe is definite keeper! I served them on toasted onion buns. Wow. A huge hit.
Made with turkey and subbed peach salsa as I had no chutney on hand. That made it a bit too watery I think. Overall as I made it, it needed a bit more zing flavor-wise. Definitely more salt next time and the chutney. Otherwise a fun take on a turkey burger that I will definitely play with some more.
